I have a little problem when I try to create a component.
The error message is the headline "error creating component".
For example, the VOB is NVA_BSP,the Componet Name is NVA_BSP_HAL and the Root Directory is NVA_BSP_HAL
when I creat the NVA_BSP_HAL,the error message "error creating component" will appear.
but with the same step when I creat the NVA_BSP_Hal it will be successful.
so,I want to learn the reasons which caused the error and how can I get rid of the problem.

Re: Error creating component2012-12-17T17:24:20Z in response to SystemAdminThis is likely due to a namespace collision with another meta-data object in the same PVOB. Object names are case-sensitive, so check the PVOB for other objects (components, stream, projects, baselines, etc.) that may already use that name.
Re: Error creating component2012-12-19T12:45:02Z in response to jeff98airThanks for your answer，the componet named NVA_BSP_HAL has really existed but it's hidden.When I use "desc -l " on the PVOB ,CC tells me: Error: Unable to find component.In this case,how can I get rid of the problem.
I am looking forword for your answers.
Thanks and best wishes！
Re: Error creating component2012-12-19T17:37:01Z in response to SystemAdminRun the following lscomp command and see if component NVA_BSP_HAL is listed:
cleartool lscomp -s -obs -invob /your/pvob
If it is, try your describe -long on it again like this:
cleartool desc -l component:NVA_BSP_HAL@/your/pvob

Re: Error creating component2012-12-20T17:29:39Z in response to SystemAdminIt must be a different object type then. It might be a stream, activity, baseline, branch, label or even maybe a folder. Cd to your PVOB and try your describe on each of those types. Ex:
cleartool desc -l stream:NVA_BSP_HAL cleartool desc -l activity:NVA_BSP_HAL cleartool desc -l baseline:NVA_BSP_HAL cleartool desc -l brtype:NVA_BSP_HAL cleartool desc -l lbtype:NVA_BSP_HAL cleartool desc -l folder:NVA_BSP_HAL
Not sure how much effort you want to put into this though, since it's not really hurting anything except maybe your component naming convention.
